Upcoming Webinars

September 10, 2014
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm (CDT) –  (1 hour CLE)

Prosecutorial Immunity – (Approved for TBLS Credit: Criminal Law)
Speaker:  Jonathan Wharton, Attorney at Law, Longview, TX
When people are convicted of crimes they did not commit, most people expect the prosecutors involved to be held accountable. Even in cases in which the prosecution hides evidence, however, they are rarely, if ever, liable in a civil lawsuit. Courts are extremely reluctant to hold the prosecutors’ feet to the same fire as a typical criminal defendant. This presentation will cover the limits of civil liability, the possibility of ethical consequences for prosecutors, and the two instances in which a prosecutor has been prosecuted himself for misconduct.

 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm (CDT) –  (1 hour CLE)
 Divorce Financial Help – (Approved for TBLS Credit: Civil Trial Law and Family Law)
Speaker:  Carrie D. Wilson, CFP®, CDFA™, Investment Advisor, McKinney, TX
The presentation is a summary of a case where additional communication between counsel and the financial professional would have saved the client money and effort.  Differences between a pre-mediation proposal and post–divorce results are highlighted and quantified.  Focus is given to several drafting, processing and calculating errors that might have been avoided with more extensive teamwork.

12:00 pm – 1:00 pm (CDT) –  (1 hour CLE)
Creating Effective Records Requests (Approved for TBLS Credit: Civil Trial Law and Personal Injury Trial Law)

Speakers:  Dr. Ron Luke and Kacy Turner, Research & Planning Consultants, LP
The move towards doing all things digitally in the work place has made many daily tasks much easier and more straightforward. However, a paralegal’s job of creating effective and comprehensive medical records requests is not one of them. A great deal of the clinical and billing data an attorney or expert witness needs to evaluate a case may never  be printed or put in a paper file. If you don’t know how to request digital records and data, your firm won’t have all the information it needs. In many personal injury cases and medical payment disputes, electronic medical records and billing data contain the most crucial information . It is important for expert witnesses for both plaintiff and defense attorneys to have all of the information they need to develop an informed opinion on a case.
